The Ford F-150 Raptor was already the most off-road-capable truck in the half-ton segment, if not the entire truck world, over the past two years of availability, but the Motor Company has added several new features for 2019 that make it even better in every situation. However, these upgrades come with a cost, with the 2019 Raptor starting $2,180 more than the 2018 models, whether you are looking at the Super Cab or SuperCrew models.
The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor will be offered in three new exterior colors - Ford Performance Blue, Agate Black and Velocity Blue – and there will be a new body applique. These new colors and the new decal package will help the 2019 models stand out from the 2017 and 2018 trucks.
There are also new Recaro front bucket seats and new Fox Racing Shox with live valve technology, along with the introduction of the Trail Control system. These simple changes will make the truck more comfortable on- and off-road, easier to drive off-road and more responsive in every driving situation.
The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor with the Super Cab starts at $54,350, including destination, while the larger SuperCrew Raptor starts at $57,335. Each of those prices represent increases of $2,180 over the 2018 pricing, and considering the new features listed above, an increase of about $2,200 on a $50k-60k truck isn’t a huge ordeal. Really, that shouldn’t be a deal-breaker for any potential buyers, especially once they check out the Trail Control system and the new Recaro seats.
When the Raptor was first introduced for the 2017 model year, it had a base starting price (with destination) of $49,520. With the newest increase of the base price to $54,350 the price has climbed by nearly $5,000 in just three model years. Of course, those increases come with new features, but that doesn’t help those folks looking to get into a new Raptor on a budget.
